Norm Chow Withdraws His Name from Consideration at UCLA

As coler0kw said here, Titans' offensive coordinator Norm Chow has withdrawn his name from consideration for the head coaching job at UCLA:

"I appreciate the interest UCLA has shown in me and the opportunity to speak with them about the head coaching position,'' Chow said in the statement.

"While I was told that our meeting went very well, I was given no indication as to what their final decision will be, or what their time frame is to make that decision.

"Nevertheless, I have decided not to pursue things further with UCLA at this time. My focus is on the Tennessee Titans and preparing our team for a chance at the playoffs.''

The people over at Bruins Nation should be pretty happy to hear this news.  They weren't to happy about the idea of Chow being their coach.  I was hoping that he would be given the opportunity for 2 reasons:
  1. He seems like a good guy who wants to be a head coach
  2. I would like to see the Titans go in a different direction
We have had a lot of discussions about Chow here in recent weeks, and the majority of us don't believe he is using Vince Young to his full potential.  Hoepfully that will change next season as it appears that Chow will still be here.
